Lipid membranes are highly complex and dynamic systems formed by hundreds of different types of lipids combined in specific ratios. Many pathological cells exhibit significant alterations in the lipid composition of their membranes when compared to healthy cells. For example, lipid profile singularities have been found in cancer, bacterial and viral infections and even in senescent cells...

Poster Communication

α-pinene is the most abundant monoterpene in the atmosphere and its oxidation yields to several oxygenated species that play a major role in the formation of secondary organic aerosols. α-pinene oxide (C$_{10}$H$_{16}$O) is generated from the reaction of ozone with α-pinene and has been shown to contribute to the formation of organosulfates under atmospheric conditions. Thus, understanding its...

P.A. Ribeiro (Azobenzene molecules present TRANS-CIS isomerization capabilities about the N=N bound, which can be induced with light. The TRANS conformation, naturally the most energetically stable at room temperature, can be converted into CIS conformation under the action of light, with the rate of TRANS-CIS-TRANS conversion for a given molecular system dependent on temperature and light, namely light intensity, wavelength, and light electric filed direction with respect to molecular dipole moment. This process is accompanied by molecular reorientation can be used to optically induce birefringence and to create relief grating in the medium containing azobenzene molecules. The main use of materials is in photonics, namely in optical storage, sensors, energy conversion devices and information processing, reason for which these materials have been widely investigated over the past years. A general overview of these materials features will be drawn, its applications and trends.)

Interactions between proteins and their solvent environment can be studied in a bottom-up approach using hydrogen-bonded biomolecule-solvent clusters. The ultrafast dynamics following UV-light-induced electronic excitation of the biomolecular chromophores, potential radiation-damage, and their dependence on solvation are important open questions. Specific and precise studies of the...

Host defense peptides (HDPs) are short cationic peptides that have a critical role in the innate immune response across all living organisms [1]. Their primary mode of action does not depend on protein receptors, but instead on their ability to target and disrupt the membranes of various pathogenic and pathological cells, such as those found in cancer, bacteria, or even our own senescent...
